I dont know what to do.

I October 2020, I was CT by the doctors from 1mg of clonazepam and then in spite of trying millions of other sedating things, nothing improved. I slept 0 to 3 hours for the last 6 months.

3 weeks ago I gave up and took 0.5 clonazaepam which gave me 5 hours for about 4 days and now im back to 3 hours.

I think Im doomed.

I dont know if I should do rapid taper since I took it now for 3 weeks only.

But Im clearly in tolerance bc it doesnt have any sedating effect on me.

Should I then rather do a slow taper and hope I wont die in the process?

Im severele exhausted and have very bad tinnitus which makes sleeping so so so hard.

I just dont know what to do anymore.

I would do a slow taper. You don't need to jolt your system anymore than it's been jolted IMO. I am sorry your sleep is only 3 hours. I feel your pain. I've had many 1 hour and zero hour nights. You will get through this! I tried trazodone last night and it helped me get 4+ hours of sleep, so maybe you could try that? I understand if you don't want to take anything, though. I respect that.

You will get through this and good for you for getting off the clonozapam! I hit tolerance with Xanax, so I understand. The only thing it does for me now is mitigate interdose anxiety and symptoms. It does nothing to really relax me or put me to sleep.

Hang in there! It takes time for your brain to heal. Give it that time,

[...] I am so sorry you are struggling but we need to keep this thread as a place to support each other thru the insomnia component of wd. If u need tapering advice best to go across to the klonopin klub thread or tapering threads.

Unfortunately we are ot have been where you are and as frightening as it is you wonít die. You must try ur very hardest to accept it. Easier said than done but itís the only thing that will get you thru this.

Stay strong

Hi [...],

 I went to lunch with a friend and then we went back to my house to watch a movie and some TV. So, we laid low but it was a nice visit and we enjoyed going out for lunch.

Here's hoping tonight and tomorrow go well:)

How was your day?

Hello 0 to 3 er's! I hope you are all doing well! Check in and tell us about your day! I am feeling OK today despite very little sleep:) I credit the trazodone antidepressant quality for that.

Hey peeps x so I did absolutely no excercise yesterday and just relaxed. Zero sleep.
Today I walked for 2.5 hrs, and did all housework ect. We are in lockdown now so will also have to home school my kids so also did that today. Also dropped my son to work and will have to pick him up at 8:45 unless by some miracle my body wants to sleep but I wonít hold my breath  ::)

SeeÖ I excercise I donít sleep. I dont excercise, I donít sleep. So I may as well excercise if I can.

Itís total BS.

Iím ok, but pretty effing over it.
